i have the whole day to myself, no obligations, nothing i have to do.
i sleep in and read in bed for a good hour before the dog insists
on his breakfast. later we walk a different path around the ponds,
and i notice how good the air smells. i tentatively make a mental list
for a getaway coming up, but mostly i just read and relax. the dog
is happy about this and there is even an afternoon nap for the two of us.
